The Wedding of Christine & Kuan Eng

To be honest, I am still deciding whether to keep this site as a blog or switch it into a portfolio website. This URL is on my new business card now. I’m thinking to maintain it as a blog and if I have to, I will put a link to connect to my other platforms. It is already there on the left side anyway. What do you reckon?

I have been neglecting my blog updates for good two years and here I am again. It is very confusing when you run a business (or businesses) alone or in other words, one man show. Sometimes my tasks require me to do three different things at a time (learning how to split myself into three different bodies LOL) hence, let go some of the stuff I used to do. The solution to my challenges now is to take interns into my company. That would (hopefully) save me several hours a week from doing something I shouldn’t be doing.

By the way, I forgot how great it was to do editing on my 27″ iMac because nowadays I spend most of the time on my MacBook Pro. To the extend where I think I don’t need an iMac anymore but no I was wrong! Doing editing is without a doubt the best on a bigger screen. Here, I present you Christine and Kuan Eng’s wedding. Such an amazing and super nice couple. The wedding took place at InterContinental Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. Beautiful and intimate dinner reception. I wish them both all the best and stay fabulous!

Mitsui Outlet Park, Sepang

First of all, it has been 2 freakin’ years. Second of all, Emma’s first appearance on daddy’s blog, yay! I think I wanna blog again. Pretty serious about it but consistency is my concern. Pray for me!

So, last Saturday Maisarah and I decided to pay Mitsui Outlet Park, Sepang a visit and see it for ourselves. For me, it was a good first impression. I told Maisarah it felt a little bit like overseas standard. Maisarah replied, “Mungkin sebab banyak brand mahal-mahal kot sebab tu you rasa macam tu.” LOL. Because the building is huge, it automatically makes it sort of kids friendly place. Why? Because your kids can run about. Cons? You have to run and chase them haha. On a serious note though, please be careful because there are lots of people. If you tengah mabuk shopping, memang lupa bebudak ni semua unless you have someone to entertain them while you’re shopping.

I didn’t shop that day. Couldn’t shop with kids around. Nanti you tend to make rush decision and end up buying something you don’t even need but you buy it because you’re in a rush. Make sense? On the other hand, Maisarah thinks Mitsui is not a “fun” place to shop in terms of pricing. She thinks takde la murah sangat and it is just like a big mall with big sale. Not like an outlet. An outlet should offer crazy price. Even JPO (Johor Premium Outlet) is cheaper. At Mitsui, the cheapest shirt you can get is RM 29 but JPO ada yang from RM 5. Mungkin ade yang murah we all tak jumpa. Next trip we go without kids ahaks.

All in all, not too bad la. I wish I took more photos tapi nak handle camera lagi, budak-budak lagi, itu ini, memang ribut! Sesape yang ade anak tau lah macam mane ahaks. But again, kalau asyik bagi alasan jer, sampai bila pun takde gambar kan? A for effort!

Bapak ah dah pukul 4 pagi wei. Aku nak tido! Bye!

Syawal in Kota Bharu

r1r3r2 r4 r5 r6 r7 r8r11r9 r12 r13 r14r18r33r15r19r17r20r16r23r21r24r22r25 r26 r27 r28 r29

One thing that happens to me all the time and happened again was – “I should have taken more pictures!” Although most of the time I stick to my principal which is “biar gambar sikit tapi semua berkualiti” but sometimes I just wish I take more.

It becomes more and more challenging to update my blog as far as time is concerned. And procrastination cannot be tolerated. Not even once or else it will spread like a virus and for all you know, it’s been 2 years since you last updated your blog.

For the first time ever, I felt like this was the busiest Syawal I have ever had so far. From day 1 to day 6 non stop visiting, meeting family and friends and open houses. I had to squeeze in a little time (sacrificed my evening nap hehe) to go to PCB because one – it is compulsory. Second – Medina wanted to play kite and third – Maisarah wanted to eat colek. Luckily I have my two helpful sisters who were always there to help whenever Maisarah and I needed the most.

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri everyone!

Candat Sotong & Pulau Kapas

b1 b2 b3 b4 b5b29b7b6 b8 b9 b10 b11 b12 b13 b15 b31b17 b18 b19 b20 b21 b23b30b24b22b25 b26 b27 b28

It started when 4 of us were too busy with life and had no time to think like we did 13 years back. Our WhatsApp group remained silent for a few months. One fine day, Achik (plum guy red shirt) broke the silence. He said, “lamo tok kukuk group nih”. It means, it’s been a while since our last conversation in the group. Then suddenly one by one started to respond Achik. Then Along (the kopiah guy) came out with this idea. He said, “why don’t we take a break and go do something out of our comfort zone”. Since he lives in Marang, Terengganu he suggested candat sotong activity.

At first I was like, what the hell is candat sotong (not that I’m a bimbo). Then I started googling and thinking this is not bad at all. Brand new experience for all of us. So we started looking the right dates. Alang (the nelayan look) was a bit reluctant to join at first considering he is always busy and workaholic. So, 3 of us had to convince Alang that this would be the best thing to do in conjunction with our reunion too. The last time we did something together was 13 years ago and that’s it.

In 2 days, we found the right dates, everyone agreed and decided to give it a shot. The plan was so random that when I told my wife I was going for candat sotong in a week time she laughed so hard. I still don’t get it until today.

So, the package is you get a boat, their people will take you to the ocean and help you with the activity. Although you have zero knowledge, it’s not a problem because these people will advice what to do. We took off from Marang jetty and overnight in the middle of the ocean. The next day we packed up and went straight to Pulau Kapas for a relaxation. We were very fortunate because the weather was perfect. The photos tell it all.

Man, I’m writing this at 2.40 am in the morning and thinking to stop right here. Wish I had more energy to write the details of the journey but all I could think of now is sleep. Hope you enjoy the photos and if you love them, it is available for purchase as well.

Cheerio!

Krabi 2015

What a nice feeling to be able to post something on a blog again. My siblings and I have been planning this vacation since last year and I’m so glad we made it through. It was my sister’s idea at first when she said she and her husband needed a holiday very much. An idea is just an idea if no actions taken. So, in November we began to delegate tasks and plan itineraries for this trip. Fortunate enough, my brother in law is rather experience in sorting what-to-do list. Go team work!

I must say the highlight of the vacation was kayaking. Sadly, I don’t have a picture here. It was freaking awesome. Took an hour kayak (approximately RM 23 per hour) around the Railay Beach. I wish I took 2 hours or more because it was absolutely fun. It looked a bit scary at first to kayak in the middle of the sea but as I went on the boat and started seeing beautiful landscape and all, the scare completely disappeared.

Good times!
